oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottled (BBE 2002, from an old collection I bought). Quite much deep copper colour with a mediumsized white foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is malts, some chocolate as well as some old sweet hoppy notes. Flavour is fruity, chocolaty, some sweet fruityness as well as mild bitterness still.

Cunningham (4296) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 Bottle. Reddish colour with a light beige head. Caramel nose. Very light malty flavour.

mrdasilva (120) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2007
Red-brown color. Thin, metallic aroma. Malty and mellow flavor. Not bad - not that good either.

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2004
Bottled 2004 version (BB 04/2005)
Amber color with decent foamy brown head. Light sweet toffee aroma with hints of malt and skunked hops. Malty, watery and harsh. Gives metallic harsh aftertaste. This is like coloured Lapin Kulta.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2004
Coppery color with little off-white foam. Aroma is mild with sweet tones, some roasted malt and nuts can be noticed too. Flavor is also mild, some sweet nuts with metallic and grassy ending. Thin bodied mouthfeel, mild hops come up in the end.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 (Bottled, 2004 version) Clear amber color with quite a creamy and lacy, medium head. Mild, slightly grassy, cheap-north-German-pils-like hoppy aroma. Short and sweetish, malty flavor with moderate hopping and metal. No aftertaste at all. Thin, hardly medium-bodied palate with medium, slightly stingy carbonation. An easily drinkable, easily forgettable brew.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2003
Reddish-brown in colour, thick white head and nice lace. Malty and nutty nose. Smooth and balanced, light to medium body, malty and a bit nut-like beer with some hops. Aftertaste is pretty long.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 5/20
omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2002
Nut brown. Very thin and completely tasteless Christmas lager.

4.6
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2001
A very good münchener dark lager. Robust body, clean palate and very good use of aromatic hops. A very good accompaniment to the traditional Christmas ham in Finland, but pleasant enough to be enjoyed on its own.
